We camped here once because it was easy for part of our family to get to from NYC. Sites were a little too close together and one of the sites we reserved was filled with broken glass, we did call the park office and they promptly sent someone out to clean it up. Bathrooms were clean but there wasn't soap in any of the dispensers. If you're truly looking to get away from it all I would go elsewhere since the parkway runs through/over the park, you will be able to hear traffic noises. That said, this is probably a great place for those who have not camped before, it's easy to get to and close to civilization.
We went camping here this summer with a few friends. the campsites are basic. You get flat land and a fire ring. There is only one bathroom facility on the property which we did not love. The facilities were clean so…yay! The staff were fine. Not great or fun, just fine. Bonus here, they do have a swimmable lake on the property. However, he water is pretty dirty. My friends and I walked out with green dirt on us. No worries it rinses right off in the shower!
This is a great site for those who are not avid campers. It’s close to town if you forget something and it has all the facilities you may need, bathroom, shower, etc. The best part is all the trails. Great place for hiking
I always love camping in a state park - this one is easily accessible from NYC and popular. Not for someone looking for quiet and solitude, but good for a good escape. Hiking trails nearby, picnic tables and rest areas available.
i have camped here twice the last time which was in 2016 during the summer and it was OK. we had some issues with other campers and hikers being young and partying and just being very ignorant. There was trash scattered through out the site aswell. other then them few problems it is a very nice ground for families. and fairly acceptable with the prices !
This park is on the list of 50 top NJ Hikes, and it has a few great trails. The trails range from easy to moderate with quite a few lookout locations. The elevation of the trails is not too strenuous. While also walking the trails, people are able to come across many picnic and resting areas. It's a great park, and used quite often.
